would vote for. 11 days left. president obama cannot get above 47%. that has to be disturbing to you. >> bob: it is if you take one poll. but i think he has a 47% base. the other thing is gallup came out and for the first time, obama favoritability job rating is above 50%. >> dana: still romney/obama 51/45 p.c. >> greg: who cares if the economy is dead if you have a cool president? that's what mtv is about. saying this guy is great. he can do a mean a green impersonation. isn't that more important than the fact that you are unemployed and living at home? if you think obama can handle the economy you think joan crawford was great with kids. >> bob: i get that. >> greg: i was going to do a sandusky joke and thought not. >> eric: put up the last graphic. stunning. $2 million campaign. >> andrea: $2 billion an the president says this is disgusting to him. he is the one that turned away public funds. i would say, folks, $26 every second. >> bob: he turned it down in the last three elections. >> andrea: bob, remember he made the commitment and backed off it first. >> eric: today, he said t
the supporters who support president obama to actually go out and vote for him. especially younger voters. the obama campaign has now delivered the hippest ad in the history of presidential campaigning, starring possibly the most ultra cool person in the history of television. >> your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. it should be with a guy with beautiful -- someone who really cares about and understands women. a guy who cares whether you get health insurance, you want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of iraq. or thinks that gay people should never have beautiful complicated weddings. it's a fun game to say who are you voting for and you say i don't want to tell you. think about how you want to spend those four years. in college age time, that's 150 years. also super uncool to be out and about and say do you vote, no i wasn't vote. my first time voting was amazing. it was this line in the sand. before i was a girl, now i was a rim. i went to the polling station, i pulled back the curtain. i voted for barack obama. >> that was of
weeks. nate silver projects president obama will win 295 electoral votes and mitt romney will win 243. so krystal ball we are 12 days away from the ugliest creature that mitt romney has dragged into the presidential campaign, john sununu. he was driven out of washington, in scandal when he was the white house chief of staff for the first president bush. the man was driven out in scandal and it took mitt romney to drag him back in front of television cameras. >> it's been such a bizarre choice. he is the person he put forward the most. he's their lead surrogate and it's such a strange choice for his campaign and this is not the first time that he's stepped in it. he's the one who had to apologize for saying the president needs to learn how to be an american. he's the one who called the president lazy after the first debate. this guy has been more of a liability. and on the colin powell endorsement, it was likely to be a one-day story. john sununu has ensured that we have a reason to continue talking about how colin powell's endorsement is for another day. >> and he thinks he can put ou
pulled back the curtain. i voted for barack obama. >> cenk: but there is a twist to that story. i can't wait to shove that in the republicans' face. do you know what time it is? it's showtime. >> cenk: all right let's be honest. it's panic time. mitt romney is winning on the national level. on the popular vote. this is a collection of votes that the "huffington post" does, 47.3% to 46.9%. when you look at the margin of error, he is winning. when you look at other politics, there you have 47.9%-to-47.0%. i thought barack obama would win the popular vote and the college electoral vote. this morning as i looked a the those numbers. that's not one poll. that's a combination of polls. there is some chance now that president obama loses the popular vote, which is amazing. why is that the case? president obama had to do these things. one was the other guy sucks check. we got that. i mean, he hammered romney and did it effectively. number two we didn't do that bad over the last few years. we could have done better but it was a mess in the first place. i think he has done a fairly good job pre
of the reasons why i voted for president obama back in 2008, because i believe that he could do this, and i think he has, even from the housing market standpoint where i live in atlanta. i mean, you try to find a luxury condo for sale, there's nothing for sale. there's no inventory here in this section in atlanta. i own a rental property as well. i took advantage of the slump, and i bought additional properties six months ago. now in the area that i bought, when i look at the inventory that's available, i can't even get the deals that i was able to get six months ago. the inventory is not even there. certainly looking for it, i was trying to maybe take advantage of some of this shadow inventory that economists had been talking about, well, where is it it's not coming. i'd like to buy some of it. the housing market is also doing really well, so i just don't believe republicans, with their messages of doom and gloom, and i've already voted for barack obama. host: alicia, the previous caller talked about her optimism being short-term, in that it was seasonal because of all the hiring that's going on
and pulled back the curtain and voted for barack obama. >> sean: joining me now with reaction from americans for prosperity jennifer steve >> gives me free birth control and. >> that a all we need. the president is not the first one to use virgin voting humor, right? >> really. >> don't you remember? don't you remember who said i know what it feels like to vote republican for the first time? it actually hurts a little bit but then. >> sean: who said that? >> then it feels just great. >> ronald reagan. >> sean: he did not! he did not! >> i need to fact check that. fact check that. >> sean: i have to fact check that. was that a regan ad? >> ronald reagan. he was quoting a line. >> he was a quoting. >> he was talking to someone about being a democrat. talking about being a democrat and then crossing the line and voting republican. >> i don't find this ad insulting at all. what i find insulting that the president of the united states allows the benito attack to happen and allows a united states navy seal to die after he calls for backup and nobody from the white house sends help. i find it insul
to make a difference for president obama. it won't if romney has more votes and wins. it's important to remind the supporters what's at stake and to get them to bank those votes in advance. >> jeff, we are expecting sandy to throw quite the wrench into some campaigning. governor romney shifting his stops tomorrow from virginia to ohio. power outages after the storm could really shift priorities for a lot of swing state voters. how big could the political impact of sandy be? s. >> well, the first thing to think about, since you know i like to do the counterfactual history. what if sandy hit on tuesday november 6th? that would be something that has never happened before, as far as i can tell in american politics. the broader point, if i may, is that the obama campaign, its one advantage even in the midst of the last couple of weeks since the first debate of declining leads is that it's had four years, five, if you count the 2008 campaign, to build a turnout machine. the sophistication of how you locate your voters and how you persuade them to vote has changed by a factor of a million,
, early voting is making this year's ground game more important. obama has the edge there too. his campaign opened more than twice as many field offices as mitt romney. and that has given him a two-to-one lead for example among early voters in ohio. if you look at iowa, it's 35 points. let me be clear. this is not hypothetical polling. those polls that i just mentioned are of people who already voted. and obama isn't just beating romney. this week i spoke to campaign aide, adam fletcher who says the obama campaign is also beating its early vote margins from 2008. what is the gop response? it's twofold. first, they say they have an advantage with absentee and election-day voters. that's true. but there is another response that i think is more troubling. in ohio, they tried to stop the early voting on the weekend before november 6th. that's against the rules. and when that failed, ohio republicans went all the way to the supreme court, which rejected their attempt. so like voter id laws, early vote cog become another ugly battle over the right to vote itself. and that's one rule of p
vote is key. president obama carried this state in 2008. unemployment rate far below the national average, but mitt romney has a strong presence here. not only was he governor of neighboring massachusetts, but he owns a house here in new hampshire. kristen welker, thank you for that report. >>> from new hampshire to the sunshine state. many residents down here in florida not waiting until election day to cast their ballots. just this morning, hundreds, thousands lining up at polling places to lock in their support for their candidate of choice. will this early electoral activity impact what we see on november 6th? joining me to talk about it, a.b. stoddard associate editor on the hill and jeff greenberg. a.b., let me start with you. both candidates want to bank votes, but this has been a major push for the president, in particular. he made it his public service announcement on the trail. can democrats make enough strides with in-person early voting to prevent sweating out election night? >> well, that's what they hope. if you talk to them in these last two weeks, the goal has been
%. early voting has been under way in ohio for 25 days. today, president obama campaigned on local ohio television via satellite from washington. >> i'm very confident and the reason is first of all we've got incredible volunteers and folks who are out there making phone calls and knocking on doors and as you know early voting has started in ohio and we've seen a huge up surge in people taking advantage of that. so we've got a pretty good sense of who's actually voting in ohio. >> joining me now are joy reid and ohio state senator nina turner. senator turner you've had get out the vote rallies repeatedly. what have you been doing today and in the last 11 days to get out the vote? >> we're firing up the president's base and making sure that people understand that this is a choice election and in that no one can sit this out and we have to make sure that in the state of ohio that we continue to rally the base, get folks excited and they are very excited, lawrence. contrarry to what motion may be seeing. there is no enthusiasm gap in the state of ohio. they fully understand what is at stak
. president obama flew back to chicago on thursday to take advantage of early voting in illinois becoming the first sitting president in history to cast a ballot early. mitt romney's campaign, meanwhile, has been buffeted by a series of things that happened to put him on defensive. richard mourdock, who romney has endorsed, became the latest gop candidate to make con throw versal comments about rape. john sununu suggested that former secretary of state colin powell had crossed party lines to endorse president obama because of the president's race. i think what we're seeing in the race is essentially the race regressing to the mean. it's basically the race going to what its stable equilibrium is. if you go back and you look at the nate silver model, the role that nate silver's model plays in the psychology of liberals is a topic we could do a whole show on. people are wearing out their mouse button by clicking refresh. basically the race is where it was in june. i mean, so everything that was, you know, before everyone started campaigning, right, mitt romney gets the nomination, you basica
that popular vote and obama makes us win the electoral college. >> we're going to be critical. >> i would be happy to have that discussion. >> we at the nation magazine have been calling for the abolition of the electoral college. if that's what happens, we should rethink that. >> convenience. >> i do think there's a remote chance that that's the scenario, left/right coalition. they'll have the tea party really freaked out. they already questioned the legitimacy of the 2008 election which is indisputable. they have a point there. they have a kernel of truth about the populus will being denied and it happened in 2000, it could happen in 2012. >> on tomorrow's show we're going to have your colleague, rick hurtsberg, we're going to talk about the electoral college, why it's there. >> how we can't get rid of it. >> we're stuck. >> there's an incredibly clever way around that that akila martin has come up with. >> you're talking like a republican. >> no, not with an amendment. state law. here's another thing that happened this week. we all know about the mourdock quote about rape. i'll play th
romney wins the popular vote, barack obama wins the electoral vote and the presidency, like we had in 2000, and it raises questions going into governing. so i think what you see is the next day, mitch mcconnell and john boehner the republican leaders in the congress, stand up and say we'll speak for the majority of the country and therefore continue to oppose the president's agenda. >> what about you, amie? any words from inside the white house? are they mulling this prospect of the possible electoral vote split and how it might affect governing? >> i don't think they care so much about the national poll. they haven't really even strategists tell me they haven't even really been focused on that. they're focused on the swing states. so i think that when the president does come back, if he does come back, then he will have to say, you know, this is all in the past, let's all try to work together. but i think they're taking the swing state polling very seriously, and not so much on the other. >> yeah. steve, quickly, hurricane sandy. we know it's canceled events in virginia and new ha
that four years ago early voting helped obama win the white house. the same thing is being said this year, that a lot of voters will come early and vote before election day. this is our new poll out in ohio. among those voting early, you can see the president has a big advantage there, 58% to 39%. mitt romney has the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yeste
of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the raw politics with gop strategist mary matalin and democratic strategist, james carville. good evening to you both. james, cornell belcher, the obama 2012 pollster, was on the program last night and he was saying that in internal polls, they're not seeing this romney momentum that the media has talked about so much since the first debate. they think momentum that obama is doing pretty well. do you buy that, that there's not the narrative of romney momentum is not accurate? >> i think romney did do better, objectively he improved his position after the first debate. i don't think he improved it any in the last ten days or so, but he improved his position then. i don't see
obama ad is basically trying to frighten democrats into making sure they vote. reminding them of the disputed 2000 election. >> 537. the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. >> reporter: a new poll shows that 59% of obama voters and 58% of romney voters are very enthusiastic. but the abc news/"washington post" poll indicates obama's enthusiasm numbers were higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama ou
. romney is tied 47% with obama about the vote. this is about our pocketbooks and bank accounts and jobs and women has been effected with the jobless rate under president obama and that's what it's about. it's not working. >> i don't think it's funniy at all. it's not funny because we are not going to fall for it in the end. women were told that the reason why republicans wanted to get into congress is because they wanted to do something about the debt. they got in there and immediately attacked the plan on parenthood. they passed 26 laws in hundreds of states. they have here a woman who is attacked, called a slut for wanting access to contraception and a candidate that just said, i wouldn't phrased it that way. exactly how would he have phrased it? >> that's a false narrative. >> i don't want to get off the topic of women -- okay. i will give you that time. i want to get to the impact on swing voters so-called by "the new york times" waitress moms and what is this going to do to the pitch battle in ohio, in florida, in virginia for women voters in the united states. >> we see the so-cal
don't understand how a college kid can vote for barack obama. >> reporter: i think it's safe to say president obama will disagree with those comments. it's a little windy right now, courtesy of tropical storm sandy, but no hit impacting us here in florida. mitt romney with three events in the state today. >> all righty. >> thank you very much, paul. >>> new this morning, the leader of al qaeda is calling on muslims worldwide to kidnap westerners. the new video of ayman zawahiri was posted on a website more than two hours long. >> the threat is apparently retaliation for the imprisonment of a man convicted of plotting the 1993 world trade center bombing. we'll have more later this morning. >>> we've got a lot more ahead, though, for you. stick around. >>> here's what's coming up. >>> looks like it's going to be a pretty bad storm. >> sandy is barreling north. it could leave millions of people without power, and the damage to the campaigns could be catastrophic. >>> of the 50 states electing the president, these are the states that could swing either way. all morning we're putting the
the presidential election. to that point, the obama campaign put out this ad. >> 537, the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. so this year, if you're thinking that your vote doesn't count, that it won't matter, well, back then there were probably at least 537 people who felt the same way. >> every vote counts, that's a message that's especially critical in battleground states like ohio. voting controversies have dominated much of the discussion. jon husted is ohio's secretary of state. sir, good to have you with us. first question -- >> great to be with you. >> -- the courts have reinstated voting on sunday before election day. is it over now? is it settled or is there still an appeal to be heard? >> actually, that's not what the court said. the court said we could have it, or we could shut it down. what i chose to do is implement uniform hours across the state for the saturday, sunday and monday before the election. but that issue is settled. and we're moving on to the n
votes. that's one of president obama's key messages right now. alex, i can tell you this race here in new hampshire is essentially in a deadlock with the president holding onto a narrow lead. >> i'll tell you whether it's four electoral votes there in new hampshire or nine in colorado feels like a battle for every single one out there right now. kristen welker, thank you so much. enjoy james taylor, i might add. >>> also ahead, more on the impact hurricane sandy could have on the election. coming up in strategy talk, the comments made by one romney team surrogate still reverberating. what's behind his remarks. and it's not the first time he said something outrageous. >>> a bit later, the news room edition of office politics. i talk with several of my colleague about the what if scenarios for november 7th, the day after the election. keep it here. you're watching "weekends with alex witt." and we got onesies. sometimes miracles get messy. so we use tide free. no perfumes or dyes for her delicate skin. brad. not it. not it. just kidding. that's our tide. what's yours? throughout our
of the obama campaign strategy, urging people to get out and vote early. so we are here in new hampshire, which is another key battle ground state. president obama will be speaking here a little bit later on this afternoon. he will be joined by music icon james taylor. this is the president's sixth visit to new hampshire. doesn't have as many electoral votes as colorado. it only has four electoral votes. but those are four important electoral votes because this race is so razor tight, alex. president obama won this state in 2008 and hasn't seen some of the same effects of the economic downturn as other states in fact the unemployment rate here is at 5.7%. it's far below the national average. but of course mitt romney has a home in this state. he was governor of neighboring massachusetts. so he carries a lot of weight here in this state as well. i expect from president obama takes the podium later on this afternoon you will hear him continue his message to middle class voters trying to make the case that he is the candidate to best preserve the interests of middle class voters and also to sort o
in the battle ground state. find the people that voted for obama in 08 because hope and change sounded good and now know it didn't happen and it was not real. hope and change is now anger and frustration and divide and conquer. we'll not fall for that are we. we have 10 day to go here and as you look at closing arguments, we are talking about what it take to get people back to work and the kind of leadership that mitt romney has provided throughout his life and running at problems to solve problems. there have been hundreds of millions of negative advertising. >>> and there you have paul ryan out there in ohio, that key battle ground state. and presidential race is now a dead heat. clear politicings average showed mitt romney pulled ahead 48-47. and fox news battle ground shows the race is close in ohio. and romney has pulled within three points of the president. that has both candidates making a major push for the women and undied -- undecided voters. joining us now. the black helicopterers. dick morris, thank you for joining us today. >> good to be here uma. i noticed something interestin
, the reason he has voted for barack obama is because of the color of his skin, that they're both black men. >> right. look, there's no wriggle room whatsoever. it's extremely offensive and this is the kind of just patent disrespect the president's had to endure a lot, to think that somebody with colin powell's depth of experience, with his wisdom and with his intellect is going to support somebody just because of the color of their skin is ridiculous, it's offensive and is in many ways just despicable but the reality is, what i feel very strongly about, is i would much rather look at just 11 days left in this election, and as much as i think mitt romney should distance himself from him, he should be very clear -- >> what should he do, mitt romney? people are saying you got to get after this guy, got to close this down, because otherwise you could have the last two weeks of the election campaign dominated by a race card, last thing they all want. >> right. again, i think mitt romney should be stepping up on this issue and frankly, what i'm even more shocked on is you have a united states se
. >> but isn't it better than nothing? >> look, if i lived in a swing state i would vote for obama no doubt about it. romney scares me. he wants to give wall street a bank check. he is a greater evil. >> eliot: you were clear you said he's the lesser of two evils. >> obama. >> eliot: yes. you did not describe him in the affirmative vote. >> you know this better than i do. when you put lawrence sumners in and timothy geithner, you are clear about it. i would have voted for you. that's why i came on this show. seriously, you had the right mentionmessage. i'm not trying to flatter you. and i thought obama in that speech he gave when running against hillary he nailed it. wall street gave him all that money. now wall street has betrayed him they think the best defense and offense and they're going to play him now. >> eliot: i thought wall street was smart enough to understand that he used rhetoric that was edgy but did nothing that would hurt them. but they seem to be soaked in rhetoric that even pinks them, and now we're not with you. >> they're shameful. >> eliot: before we spend too much time
